Everyone know's that there are still people that use tradtitional non digital cameras. And personally, i have gotten alot of crap for "cheating" and editing my pictures too much, or even jsut a little bit. I know im not alone...I was wondering what you guys say to people who give you a hard time for shooting digital?
Thanks
: )

I just smile, let them talk away, and keep shooting. I'm just having all the fun :)

I point my shotgun at them and say "Don't you think it's preferrable over 12 gauge?"

...then I burn their village.

tell them if they are so offended, they should buy you a film camera, a couple of lenses, and leave you alone...

but seriously, i usually tell them that you still need to take a great photograph with digital, it just makes it more convenient to see if you actually made a quality photo. Also mutter something under your breath like you probably dont even know the difference between the viewfinder and the lens you old hag.

I wonder if I'm the only person that sees this picture and thinks...

Shop smart, shop S-MART.

I would say that I have it on good authority* that Ansel Adams would be Photoshopping the heck out of his images if he were still alive ...

*two different people who were darkroom assistants to AA independently mentioned this to me (a moderate paraphrase) about 8 years apart ...

You mean Bear wasn't Ansel's only assistant? Outrageous!

Open their film door and say "Hey! That's not on my camera!"

Maybe look and ask, "Wasn't it Ansel Adams who said, 'You don't take a photograph, you make it.'?"

By no means. A few years ago a friend of mine was singing in a Bach festival in Carmel, and I got to attend the post-concert reception, which was held at Adams' house there -- included was being able to hang out in the darkroom and talk to the guy who was managing it then ... and look at the pictures on the walls ... : )

I may be biased, but so far I think burning their village is the best solution.

The lack of respect here is enough to make a man weep...

*looks down in regret* - Hi bear, didn't um... see you lurking there...

Just remind them that people were reluctant to give up horses when cars were invented.
